Sometimes you look at your gross profit give by the accountant somehow it does not look right. So what you want to do is analyse the details for yourself.
Now there are a few reports that can help you.
Here is how you can calculate your retail store gross profit margin by department.
The best report to start is
Register report> Sales Register> Dissection Sales / Profitability for a Given Period
For the time you are concerned about, select a suitable period.
That report will give you a lot of detail by department, including the Quantity sold and %Profit. These are often an excellent sign of something wrong.
